Our patio garden is doing exceptionally well this year, thanks to my little garden helpers. In addition to the front landscaping project, we are trying to grow more of our own produce at home. I wish I could say that it was more productive, but at least the girls are getting a lesson in farming.

Elizabeth helped me grow from seed: tomatoes, bell peppers, zucchini, winter squash, lettuce, corn, basil, thyme, green onions, spinach, peas, and green beans. So far, he have gotten all of four zucchini out of this effort. However, there are some promising little balls on the tomatoes and squash plants. The lettuce looks about ready for an initial harvest and the beans and peppers are about to bloom.

Both girls help me water the plants, although Elizabeth is much better at actually aiming the watering can or the garden sprayer. Spiders and ants seem to be working well as natural pest control this year, and the only critters that really do harm to the plants are my own cats (they are currently fenced out of some containers).
